Pretty card fold using the Pansy Petals Suite
The Pansy Petals Suite Collection has everything you need to add an elegant floral touch to all your papercrafting projects. I used the suite of products today to create this beautiful Tower Card Fold. Below you will find more photos of the front and back of the card.
How fun is that? And I have all of the steps for you today and would love to hear about your experience in creating one of your own. Below you will find the pattern and then I do describe each step for you with text and photos. Have fun!
Follow these steps to create a card just like mine: Scoring & Cutting
- Cardstock Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/4″.
- Use the three photos below for a visual on the next three steps.
- Place the 8-1/4″ side at the top of your scoring tool. Score vertically at 1″, 2″, 3″, 5-1/4″, 6-1/4″ and 7-1/4″.
- Turn your cardstock so that the 5-1/2″ side is at the top of your scoring tool. Cut between the 1″ to the 3″ score lines at 1″, 2″, 3-1/2″ and 4-1/2″. Repeat on the other set of scored lines at the other end.
- Fold on all of the scored and cut lines and your card base should look like these photos as you follow the steps:
Add cardstock and designer paper layers as follows:
- Cardstock: Evening Evergreen (4) 5-3/8″ x 7/8″, (1) 4-1/8″ x 1-3/8″ and (2) 4-1/8″ x 7/8″.
- Designer Paper: Pansy Petals Designer Paper (4) 5-1/4″ x 3/4″, (1) 4″ x 1-1/4″ and (2) 4″ x 3/4″
- Layer the designer paper layers to the cardstock layers like you see in the third photo:
You can start adding your layers to your card base. The four skinny strips are glued to each side on the front and back. Followed by the three remaining strips on the front.
Next you need to cut the flowers and leaves from the printed designer paper sheets. The dies cut stamped images or preprinted images from the designer papers. The second photo shows you the pieces that I cut for the front and the third photo shows you the pieces needed for the back. I even cut one of the flowers from the edge of the designer paper that was partially cut off, because it will be glued to the bottom edge anyway. No waste!
For the two middle sections on the front and back of the card, you will need the following layers:
- Cardstock (2) Evening Evergreen Cardstock 5-3/8″ x 2-1/8″.
- Basic White Cardstock (2) 5-1/4″ x 2″. Stamp the sentiment on each layer using Fresh Freesia Ink. The white layer on the front is glued to the cardstock layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The one on the back of the card is glued flat on the cardstock layer.
Glue the two sentiment layers to the front and back as shown in the first photo. The pansies on the front are glued in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves are tucked under the flowers. The flowers and leaves on the back are all glued flat. Once all of the layers are in place, you can fold your card flat for mailing as shown in the 3rd photo:
